This is generally indicative of a bad header in an e-mail. Can you attach a sample of one, scrubbed as you deem appropriate?

I don't have an answer to "why".

But there isn't any control over badmail in Exchange 2007 and above like there was in Exchange 2003 and before. It seems that the belief is that if you are getting badmail, you need to figure out why you are getting bad mail and fix it. Each badmail creation should also cause an event log error that provides you with a little bit of information as to why the email was marked bad (and if it is because the headers are too large, that's something that can be tweaked - by default they are restricted to 64KB).

Yes. The Message-ID header is malformed.

OK so it is simply a bad email... Now should exchange clean the old ones out?

That is not a feature in Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010.

Well, as I said before, each badmail creation should also cause an event log error that provides you with a little bit of information as to why the email was marked bad.

If you get more than a few of them - you probably should investigate why they are being generated.

But yes, in general, just delete the *.bad files.
